VeganHood – Spring Picnic – New Harlem Vegan Venue – Limited Attendance

April 12 @ 7:00 pm - 9:00 pm GMT-0400

**VeganHood** has opened in Harlem, to a lot of buzz. **Patch.com** headlines: **”Hot New Harlem Restaurant Aims To ‘Bridge Veganism And The Hood'”.**

Founded by sisters **Janine Smalls** and **Lanise Herman-Thomas**, Patch writes that the sisters “**did not expect that they would end up opening one of Harlem’s most popular new restaurants**.”

Come join us as we check what all the fuss is about, and see what even non-vegans are celebrating!

**From the VeganHood site:**

We saw a need in our neighborhood for food that was similar to what we grew up eating but instead of it being animals it needed to be 100% plant based. We thought “how could we get people to love vegan food when they believe that all vegans eat are leaves and water? How can we show them that a vegan lifestyle doesn’t have to be bland and that it can be tasty and healthier?”

We knew we needed to show people better than we could tell them by creating dishes we ate at home and they themselves would make or order at restaurants. Things like our Saint Nick Fried Chick’n, soy free mac & cheese, and deserts like our Oreo puddings, comfort foods that’s filling and recognizable.
